thagrateone's Kinect Adventures (Xbox 360) review

Timed lag prevents more fun...but otherwise a real fun time...but

I was very hesitant to purchase the Kinect. I did not know how "wii" kiddy it would be or if I would want to spend a lot of time on this for the price of admission. I have a couple hours and an almost sweaty fun attitude so far. I am just hoping that this don't run thin on the whole "you are the controller" idea. I am guessing that in a couple months this might be coming up stronger with more ideas being used to make fun games like this. The Idea for this is really good..but the slight lag with movement is rather a let down. Over-all I have to say for $150 piece of equipment and 1 game that comes with is a good far. In a 6 month run...will this hold up...that is the major question I have. The MOVE and the Wii have a lot going for them...and I really hope this holds my attention. This is a strong 7 for a start of the KINECT series of games to come out. Do not worry about being upset if you fork out the money for this hardware....the navigation menus are a fresh 360 idea...not to mention moving and jumping can be pretty fun too.      It is a cool 7 outa 10.  Don't be worried about a solid purchase.

If your idea of fun involves having friends and family over and playing lighthearted entertainment for laughs while getting high on life, you want the sensor. If your idea of fun involves snipin...

    XBOX 360 Review: Kinect Adventures 0

    For the longest time, pack in games had become a thing of the past and then the Wii launched and to entice people to buy their product Nintendo packaged it with what would quickly become a cultural phenomenon, Wii Sports. Now, four years later, both Sony and Microsoft are tasked with proving to people that their motion tech works and both have chosen games to launch alongside their systems. Sony went the conventional route choosing to launch the Sony Move with Sports Champions, Microsoft on t...
